International Day for Tolerance

16th November 2018

Today is the International Day for Tolerance. The Time for Inclusive Education campaign has been an absolute juggernaut in campaigning for LGBTI education in Scotland’s schools. I am glad they have finally reached their goal and that acceptance and understanding of LGBTI individuals will be part of the Scottish curriculum.

Poor mental health and suicide is particularly prevalent amongst LGBTI young people. Our communities have been shaken by the events of the previous months. The TIE campaign has made a major contribution towards improving the lives of any young person affected, their families and their communities.
